Razer unveiled its Forge TV mini console at CES a few months ago, and it’s finally up for pre-order on Amazon. The Forge TV bundle will ship to customers on May 1st, and will include the Android TV-powered mini console and gaming controller for $150. Back at CES, Razer announced that the device would sell for $100, but that was just for the console itself.
The Forge TV has a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, an Adreno 420 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, an HDMI output (1.4), Bluetooth 4.1+HS and an ethernet port. Since it’s powered by Android TV, you can run games directly from Google Play. Not only that, you can take advantage of Razer’s new Cortex: Stream service, which allows you to transmit PC games directly to your television. Razer says Cortex: Stream can provide low latency HD resolution when streaming, but early adopters won’t be able to take advantage of the service quite yet. The company says it will be available sometime this Spring.
Considering the box’s beefy specifications and low price point, this may well be the most valuable Android TV box to hit the market so far. Especially with the added benefit of streaming PC games to the TV, we imagine many users will jump onboard with this device. If you’re interested in placing your pre-order, head to the link below.
